Last week I didn’t post a Plan for the Week. The week got a away from me and life got busy. Is that an excuse? Possibly. I did however manage to squeeze a few workouts in. A few being the key word. 10 whopping miles and 1 TRX class. Yep. That. Is. It.
I had every intention of doing more. But, I had very early morning breakfasts planned for work, my boss with me for 2 days, and I was exhausted. All I could muster up by the end of the day was 3-4 miles (that was in “feels like 99 outside” weather too).
P and I ended up taking an impromptu trip to the beach this week. Again, I had my runs planned. I had my clothes, my garmin, my NUUN and water bottle. 10 miles was going to be happen. It really was. And then I woke up to thunderstorms on Saturday. So I went back to sleep.
And I woke up and ate these instead.
And then I went to the beach and did this.
And you know what? It was nice. It was all exactly what I needed. A break. I do feel like my training has been off for quite some time and I am just going through the motions and I don’t/didn’t know how to get excited about any of it. Maybe a full weekend off was the cure. I took a weekend to eat and relax. Didi it make me a little antsy not getting my “regular” mileage in? Yep. Was it Healthy? Not really. Fun? Absolutely.
Time to get back on the wagon.
Monday: Pilates Mat 1
Tuesday: double run 6 miles in the morning, 4 evening and possibly Yoga for Runners
Wednesday: 3 miles easy, TRX class
Thursday: private pilates and 3-4 mile run
Friday: maybe long run? 10 miles?
Saturday: 3-6 miles or a class
Sunday: 3-6 miles and pilates
How often do you skip your long runs? Or exercise in general? Does it make your crazy or do you feel better after a break?
